Factors influencing therapy use following a disclosure of child sexual abuse

Research output: Book/ReportOther outputpeer-review

Abstract

Identifying consistent factors that influence engagement or completion of therapy across studies allows services and policy makers in criminal justice, child protection, community support and mental health systems to make informed decisions about approaches to therapy referral and how to support families through challenges they have that could affect their capacity to engage with services. This paper presents findings from a review of the literature aimed at identifying factors that may influence either engagement with therapy or the
completion of therapy following a disclosure of child sexual abuse to authorities. The lack of Australian studies highlights the need for local research on factors influencing therapy use to help inform the design of referral systems and interventions to improve the use of available therapy services.
